Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This home was requested by whanny, in this thread:

I followed the layout as close as possible, but it's a little bigger because of the needs of sims gameplay- they don't handle narrow hallways very well at all! There's also no octagonal turret possible without messing up the shape of the house, since this lot is made without any EPs. But if you have them you can upgrade it easily enough.

Anyway, I did my best, and I playtested it, and IMO, it looks awesome. Stealth stairs, big kitchen, and the sims can get to everything. You can even modify the "garage" for NL vampires

Lot size: medium 4x3
Cost: 95,668

Custom Content (included- many thanks to the creators!):

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

I was going to try this one but decided that making it base game was just too much trouble. You did beautifully.

7 zip, The only archive program you'll ever need again.

I do take requests, but due to winter storms, time frames are unreliable. But hey! I take requests!

I really don't download lots, because I enjoy building too much myself, but I did want to say that you did a beautiful job with this.

Wonderful job, and extra kudos for doing it without requiring every EP available! Just goes to show that creativity can sizzle without bells and whistles, in gifted hands. This lot is going straight into my game!

As soon as my game gets fixed, I'm downloading this. I never download lots, usually because I only have the base game, but this is gorgeous. I agree with what StarStuff said, the fact that you can create something like this without EPs really shows your talent. Thank you!

Thank you for this wonderful house! I have some exp's, but not NL, so I can't always find houses I can use. This one is not only great because you made it base compatible, but you did such an outstanding job of it. The layout is so unique, and there are a lot of possibilities. Nicely done.
